Oxford Industries, Inc. is a clothing retailer in the United States that specializes in high-end clothing and apparel. The company carries many major labels, including Tommy Bahama, Ben Sherman, Lilly Pulitzer, Oxford Golf and Lanier Clothes.

History[edit]

Oxford Industries was founded in 1942, when Sartain, Hicks and Thomas Lanier purchased the Oxford Manufacturing Company, a manufacturer of military uniforms.[1] Oxford Industries joined the New York Stock Exchange in the 1960s.[1] Sartain Lanier served as Chairman of the Board and CEO until his retirement in 1981, when his son J. Hicks Lanier became Chairman and CEO.[1][2]

Today, the company has sales in excess of $750 million and employs over 10,000 people.[1] It has many major sales offices outside of its headquarters in Atlanta, including those in New York City, Seattle, and Hong Kong.[3]

On March 26, 2015, Oxford Industries announced that it will pursue the sale of its Ben Sherman label in its Q4 and 2014 Fiscal Results [4]
